"Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley dropped out of the Democratic race

after getting shellacked in the Iowa caucus. But apparently somebody in Florida likes him (or doesn’t like Clinton and Sanders). O’Malley collected 38,824 votes, or nearly 2.3 percent, Tuesday. That included 2,398 votes in Hillsborough County and 2,160 votes in Pinellas County."

1. I thought it strange he was on the ballot? He is a good man.

5. Ballots were ordered and printed in many states before he withdrew.

He did get his name off the ballot in Maryland, which is unfortunate, since I was intending to vote for him even though he withdrew. I can't get enthusiastic about the other two, but I will vote for the eventual nominee in the general election.

2. Does he have any delegates? I thought he only suspended his campaign.

Would be nice if he reactivated it. Things were much mellower when he was an active candidate.

6. I agree.

He added a great deal of civility to the discussion, and he remained consistently focused on issues and proposals. I often return to his site to read his proposals, which should have gotten more attention during the campaign.

4. So do I, Peacetrain,

but not many smiles around here at the moment. TPTB are hard to 'best,' and likely won't win it anyway.

I'm fed up with politics. Waiting for some of 'my' basketball games.

7. I like baseball too.

What cheers me up about O'Malley is I know from his resume that he has no intention of retiring from politics at this stage in his life.

So I ask myself, what is he going to do next? Which direction will he take?

He is presently supporting Fetterman and working with voter education.

I do know that he will back whichever candidate becomes the Democratic nominee.

I don't think he wants the VP position, and I don't think either Clinton or Sanders would offer it to him.

So basketball and baseball look pretty good to me for now. But O'Malley is not going away.

9. Didn't pick brackets,

just teams, and one of them is still alive!

Feeling sorry for my daughter and son in law, whose school was eliminated last night. I don't watch games of teams I support, due to concern that I jinx them (same for politics!)

10. Yeah, I have the same kind of reverse Midas touch.

Whatever I support, sinks.
